Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more!
So as a hockey fan, the Olympics are a lot of fun. It's a pretty special tournament that happens just once every four years, and to see all of the world's best players giving their all for their countries is exciting, fast-paced, wide-open hockey.
And as a hockey fan, it's great to see the sport rise to prominence for a two week period across the world so much so that a guy that would stick out in a crowd anyway, sticks out even more because of what he does. That guy is the towering 6'8" defenseman and captainn for team Slovakia: Zdeno Chara. As technology becomes an ever present and dominating facet of human existence, it's important to note that we're all really easily amused because #PicsWithZdeno is actually a thing.
Chara has had his picture taken with a bunch of fans and athletes and they're all great. Here is a nice #PicsWithZdeno collage:

See you guys and gals next week where we'll have more Olympic related shenanigans!
